Resistance Genealogy

Recommended Posts

clueliss

This is someone I follow on Twitter.  She does 'resistance genealogy' - meaning she regularly digs into the genealogy of politicians and other famous types when they stand and spew stupid crap.

She retweeted this gem after Drew Brees made his statement about 'the flag' last night.

Guess who comes not only from a history of slave owning family but is tied into the removal of Choctaw Indians and the Andrew Jackson Indian Removal Act?

This thread - she's demonstrating the power of searching public records - in this example it was triggered by the false allegation that he idiots with guns in St. Louis were democratic party donors (they aren't).

I'm not sure how I feel about this.  I have some dark history in my family tree, not only slaveholders but a slave trader, and that has nothing to do with who I am.  

I'm all about holding people accountable for their own actions, but we can't be personally liable for the sins of our fathers, so to speak.

To be clear I don't care if she embarrasses them with this, just commenting on the over arching point.
